They don't get any brighter or more incisive than Ben Shapiro. And in this book, Ben's discerning, penetrating, & astute analysis is as good as it gets.
Libs love to paint conservatives in the image of the two guys riding in the red pick-up truck near the end of the movie, "Easy Rider." But conservatives like Ben Shapiro completely shatter that image & demonstrate just how apocraphal that image really is.
Keep the mind-candy coming Ben!

Ahh yes, name calling; the last (and only) gasp of a person with no argument or intellect.

Some comments from my good friend BrianusBerklianus:
A Happy and Blessed Sunday to you all!!!!
Below are the next three pages in the Reflections on her beautiful first book, Going Rogue.
As I have stated before, to get the project moving again, I am now doing three pages at a time. I am also trying to keep the commentary brief. Certain pages will come along, such as the EXTRAORDINARY LETTER written by the Governor from TRIG'S CREATOR---these are certain pages/passages like this on which I shall dwell at greater length.
However, for the most part, I want to advance the project as quickly as I can!!
Reflections on earlier pages, along with photographs, may be found at:
God BLESS you all always!!!
DEO VOLENTE SARAH 2016!
PAGE ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-FOUR
On p. 154 of GR, Sarah writes:
"My philosophy has always been that the most responsive and responsible level of government is the local level. Local government is best able to prioritize services and projects. That's the basis of the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which, paraphrased, says that the powers not delegated specifically to the federal government or prohibited by the states are reserved to the states or the people themselves."
There it is. Catholic theologians, I believe, call this principle the Principle of Subsidiarity. You leave to smaller units functions that can best be taken care of at that level. The family over the town/city/county. The city, etc. over the state. The state over the federal/ national government.
The Governor is so very clear and concise!! If she could deliver words like these, and similar ones, about our AMERICAN PHILOSOPHY OF GOVERNMENT, in a speech to, say, 100 million Americans, she could initiate American Revolution II.
PAGE ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-FIVE
On p. 155 of GR, Sarah writes:
"The House of Representatives [i.e., in Alaska] introduced my administration's ethics reform bill, a rawhide-tough package of measures meant to pry state government away from special interests and put it back on the side of the people. Our bill followed that period of embarrassing political scandals that occurred before I was elected. Ordinary Alaskans were expressing outrage at what was going on in Juneau., and I had promised to clean house."
When I see that word "rawhide" why do I keep seeing a young Clint Eastwood, in the classic TV series "Rawhide"??!
Anyway, try an experiment, guys! Just substitute, in the above passage, "Americans" for "Alaskans," and "Washington" for "Juneau"--and imagine a PALIN ADMINISTRATION!!!
PAGE ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-SIX
On p. 156 of GR, Sarah writes:
"That pressure paid off when legislators approved an omnibus ethics bill.
"We were pleased that no one could claim pride of authorship on this. Finally the Capitol had pulled together and passed a strong bill. A Democrat lawmaker noted: 'This is one of the best pieces of work I've seen come out of the legislature because it came out as a policy document and not a political document.'
"It was music to my ears: POLICY (italics in original), not politics."
Guys, let us very briefly examine the expression, so common as to be taken for granted, "music to my ears."
What does music add to words that are merely spoken?
It raises and elevates them to a new level of emotional and even intellectual appeal.
MUSIC, like its close cousin POETRY, adds DEPTH and POWER and BEAUTY and MEANING to words!!
So here we witness Sarah Palin: A World Stateswoman, and Wise Policy Maker, NOT A MERE POLITICIAN.
She can PLAY THE MARTIAL MUSIC that will bring our ancient Constitution ALIVE for millions of Americans who are starved for leadership.
SOON, THERE WILL BE MUSIC TO THE EARS, THE MINDS, THE HEARTS of MILLIONS OF AMERICANS.
Like the war trumpets of Rohan (Tolkien), like The Battle Hymn of the Clans (SCOTS Bagpipes), like so many other martial melodies, the MUSIC of Sarah's life and oratory and heart and leadership will STIR America to ARISE FOR VICTORY!!!!!
